    Hey there readers. Well as the topic suggests... Do any of you like alternative-type guys? I know this site is called Realjock and I know that the site and everyone on it would be more in favor and attracted to jock-type guys but I was just curious to see if some liked alternative-type guys as well.

    When I say "alternative" guys, I mean guys who are into Punk, Goth, Metal, Grunge, Rock, etc. Guys who happen to like/enjoy that stuff but don't act like the stereotypes suggest.

    I have noticed that guys don't seem to like me for my personal taste and style and I guess it does get me down sometimes. Of course, I've learned to accept it and I wouldn't change myself for anyone since I genuinely am happy with the way I am. I mean, I like Goth and contrary to popular belief, I don't sacrifice animals, hate the world or people, not obsessed with death or always depressed, don't cut and so on and so fourth. I just really like the music and fashion, that's all.

    Ahem, anyway, what do you guys think? If you don't like it, that's fine and I welcome you to share why you don't but please try to keep your comments tame and non too vulgar if you can.

    Discuss...?

    I am drawn to interesting people who aren't afraid to be themselves. And a lot of "alternative" folks fit that description.

    I was once with a guy who typed in Dvorjak, spoke ancient Greek, and played the bassoon. It was all sorts of alternative fun. icon_biggrin.gif

    I think a guy who isn't afraid to be himself/who he wants to be is more attractive. We shouldn't strive to be carbon copies of each other.

    Perhaps I'm not quite understanding what the OP means by "alternative".

    That's pretty cool. You definitely wouldn't see that every day.

    Oh I apologize for the confusion. I was kind of pointing more towards Alternative as in those who dress and have interest in things considred Goth, Punk, etc. etc. Things that aren't perceived as "normal" by every day people. People viewed as "freaks" I guess would be the word since that is what a lot of people describe them as.

    But I guess I would like to add, people who are different from the norm like the example JJGreen used.

    Oh, trendy cliques! They could be nice enough people I suppose, but the clique seems to take up all their time. I can't think of anybody who kept up with it after age 25 or so... maybe a few trekkies and SCA types.

    Haha I see. I don't know, I've seen some Goths who looked over 30 who still had interest in the scene and dressed it too albeit, more tamer.

    Yes, but I'm usually the wildcard in most of my relationships.

    Alternative is such a misnomer, kind of like hipster, where the end goal is to be into things and look "different than the rest", something which you achieve by carefully following an established and specific manual of how to achieve said look and lifestyle.

    This, I do like real alternative guys. People who just march to the beat of their own drum. But cliche "outsider" uniforms have no appeal to me. Especially when the main focus is on how you look.

    Yeah, even going against the stream still leaves people wet, working by the same physics...not a true anarchist amongst them. The greatest lie of modern mainstream entertainment. Everything you can see with your family is somehow lacking credibility and truth. The early Mtv era is dead.

    I kind of see what you are saying here but not all of them are doing it just to look different then the rest, at least I'm not anyway. Speaking for myself, my outward appearance may be a bit "out there" but I just wear things I like. I'm still the same person deep inside which is why I said, I don't follow the stereotypes of what people expect to see. But eh okay. I appreciate your feedback. icon_smile.gif

    Fair enough. You like what you like and you don't like what you don't like ~

    Tattoos are hot, piercings are hot. Fire-dancing is hot. Guys into metal and other alternative genres generally are very interesting, intellectual people.
